A Wide-Band Antenna Design by Using Electromagnetic Simulation Software


Article Preview

A wide-band antenna coupling with an elliptical slot was discussed in this paper. To implement the wide band operation, an elliptical ring slot was etched on a polygonal patch. The properties of this design have been verified by using electromagnetic simulation software. Comparing to the conventional U-slot patch antenna fed by Π-shaped slot, the proposed structure is with the same impedance in bandwidth, but less than 10% in size.
